California Dreamin'

Erik Engstrom

Michael - a homeless man I met on the street of Promenade. 

I was able to visit Tommy in LA this month. 

Would you believe me if I said I loved every single second of it?

Honestly, the warm, sunny weather was not the only reason I loved LA, but I'll admit it was nice to escape the snow in Minnesota. I was outside every day.

My friend Alex, who also lives in LA, showed me the glory that is a Bird. The electric scooter is the best transportation to hit cities. We traveled the city and the board walk chatting and taking while we appreciated the beauty of the West Coast. I quickly adapted to the LA vibes. 

I'll be honest, I was a little nervous to visit LA. However, my time spent exploring with family, eating the wonderful food, and meeting incredible people quickly changed my opinion. We dined at too many good places. Gourmet sausages from Wurstküche was my favorite. Cups of cold brew were had. Tommy and I visited Churchome and met wonderful guys and gals, heard an awesome message from Judah Smith, and quickly hit the sack. Awaiting for our parents to show up the next day. 

By the end of my trip I couldn't believe how fast the time had gone. It felt like I was in California for a month, but it had gone by too fast. That being said, I will visit LA again.

Until my next trip, I hope you enjoy my little photo journal.
